Projects in the Cloud with PMPeople
Most professionals are always connected. Knowledge workers are used to collaborating on objects in the cloud: they alternate their laptop, tablet, or mobile phone, to work concurrently on the same version of the document, spreadsheet, presentation, article, web design, software code, prototype, etc. No need to download, install, send, merging changes, etc. All of them working together on the same version of the truth. In the project economy, it is also time to digitize management, knowledge and interactions between people working on projects, programs, and portfolios.
Is your PMO producing Reports or delivering Value?
Most PMOs are seen as internal cost centers adding bureaucracy to projects. PMPeople helps people collaborate on project management professionally, in the cloud, using different roles. PMOs can distribute many management activities, having more time for anticipating problems and delivering value. With PMPeople, the PMO can grow from being a cost center to lead the company in the Project Economy.
Collaborative Roles on Project Management
In the Project Economy, projects need people collaborating as a team from different perspectives. PMPeople does not prevent direct communication needed at all projects. However, it can optimize management helping the interaction between people belonging to the extended project team.
Performance Appraisal for Project Managers based on PMBOK7
Everyone can cook, but not everyone is a cook. Our profession is no different: everyone can organize tasks, but not everyone is a project manager. Normal people –non PMP®– should be able to tell if a project manager is a good or a bad professional. PMI® published a practice standard named “Project Manager Competency Development Framework” (PMCDF), based on the processes of PMBOK5. We can anticipate the next edition of the PMCDF will be aligned to PMBOK7, implying all stakeholders will be able to check good or bad project performance on 8 performance domains.
In the Project Economy, everyone has a voice

Turn ideas into reality with PMPeople
In The Project Economy there are more and more projects and more people collaborating under different roles in one or more teams, business units, programs, portfolios, or organizations. Nowadays, techology enables professional project collaboration among business units within the same organizations, or from different organizations.
Project Manager is a Profession
Project Management is a profession with a great future, but it must adapt to our times. Stakeholders expect the project to meet the business goals and deliver value. They don’t want us adding bureaucracy, wasting our time on paperwork, or even worse, wasting their time or team members time in meetings we should avoid. They need to know how the project is doing real time, just by getting evidence on 8 performance domains. Above all, they want the project to be predictable and to avoid crisis.
Controlling the Project Cost, in practice
To get the project finished under budget, we need to measure cost performance on each review date. Earned Value Management (EVM), is the ANSI 748 standard method to measure the project cost performance objectively. According to EVM standard, as of each status date, three measures are enough to analyze the project cost performance. Professional project managers can practice EVM effectively with PMPeople.
